Do you enjoy hate whispers in-game? Are you anti-social? Do you suffer from having too many people on your friends list and wish to free yourself from this anxiety inducing obstacle by making them rage-remove you off their list?

I’m here to help! I play an infamous bow/bow NB in battlegrounds named Ovenface.

Yesterday I had someone with video editing and creation skills approach me to ask if I was interested in recording a build and gameplay video. I’m not against the idea, but never had the desire to make a video. So I leave it up to everyone who reads this. If there is enough demand for an Ovenface debut, i’ll take the time to make it.

Please share your thoughts, interests, hate, or whatever else you have.

    I can save you the time: stealth, snipe spam, repeat. Oh and toss in a draining shot to be extra sure the game lags and you get health desyncs lol. If an assassins will procs just toss that in. Idk the OP specifically but I can assure you it’s not really a playstyle, more just a cop out. I built an off trait argonian (an old stambalde) bow build for kicks to see what it’s like and the kill ratios end up pretty similar to my main melee build. Just use any direct damage sets that’s dont require a proc like spriggans, any of the bow sets, even hunting’s rage is ok. It literally requires no skill and just some basic know how.

    bow/bow can kill mediocre (or even gank decent) players without skill, but Ovenface runs a competitive build at high mmrs and I would like to know more about how he does it.

    I’d be up to see some gameplay also. High MMR isnt always a good indication you’re up against good players. Depends on what time zone you’re in. I’ve no doubt that with the right build and a bit of practice you can get serious kill scores. Seeing as with my off trait armor argonian I was able to nearly match my melee main kills with very little effort and almost no practice, especially on a map like the one in the pic. I’m not so easily impressed by people who claim to run legit bow builds and don’t just spend a lot of time practicing snipe builds. Bow skills are notorious for causing lag, NBs have insane single target damage burst potential and the CC from stealth hits is also notoriously laggy with breakfrees. I’ll be impressed if I see some gameplay that doesn’t overly rely on stealth and kill steals. I’ve seen a few players do it but it’s super rare. But hey I’m always up to see something new.

    @Sharee wants to have a word with You. Remember to make archer valid that 59 kills needs to be done against premade teams when Your team is sitting at spawn otherwise archer is underperforming...

    I believe i’ll do this in two seperate videos. One with your typical gameplay/build info. A second video on how I personnally play it, tips, movement and positioning, how to be helpful to your team, avoiding damage, etc.

    Slightly different from my 1st bow build and completely different from my current non snipe build. Your build should have been my 1st bow build.
